1. User Consent:
3: User Information:
We collect two types of information: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information:
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies a specific End User. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from us or our partners, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, entering a contest or sweepstakes sponsored by us or our partners, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending us or our partners feedback, requesting information about our services, submitting an affiliate agreement, applying for a job or signing up for special offers from third parties through the Website (collectively, “Identification Activities”), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, telephone number and date of birth. When you order products or services, we may also ask you to provide us with your credit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information:
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User. This type of information may include things the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address from the computer you use to access the Internet. We, and/or our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers, may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies.
We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.
4. Personal Information from Third Parties:
We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources with which you have registered, companies who we have partnered with (collectively, "Partners") or other third parties (collectively, “Third Parties”). We may associate this information with the other Personal Information we have collected about you.
5. Tell A Friend/Invite A Friend:
If you choose to use our referral service or buy a deal for a friend, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email with the gift you bought for them or inviting him or her to visit the site. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email, sending their gift, and tracking the success of our referral program.
6. Release of Personally Identifiable Information:
From time to time, we provide offers from particular merchants (referred to as “Merchants”) who, as part of the offer, request information from our customers who purchased the offer in order to aid redemption. In those cases, we share some of your Personally Identifiable Information which may include your first and last name with our Merchants. Sharing this Information may allow our Merchant to market directly to you should they choose to do so. While marketing to you, you may receive contact from One Loyalty Network (http://www.oneloyaltynetwork.com), a website that allows our Merchant to send you additional deals, promotions, invitations, discounts, offers and reminders. However, we will only share Personally Identifiable Information with our Merchant if you engage in an Identification Activity, and then only to the Merchant involved in that Identification Activity. We specifically disclaim any responsibility or liability for the actions of such Merchant. We do not have any responsibility for the actions of the Merchant, and the actions of the Merchant are not in our control.

8. Legal Requests from Third Parties:
10. Data Tracking:
11. Use of Email Tools:
12. Control of Your Account Information:
13. Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information:
We offer you the ability to automatically review and change the information you submit to us by logging into the Website and entering in the new information yourself. Generally, we will not modify your personal information based on your request because it is very difficult to authenticate your account manually. You can change your email address, contact information, financial information, profile information, job posting information, and user preferences by logging into your account. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate.
14. Other Information Collectors:
